Peter began his teaching career as a TEFL teacher in 1992, but since completing his PhD in 1996, Dr Peter Morgan has had more than 20 years of various kinds of teaching and training experiences including executive MBA programmes taught in Israel, Dubai and the Netherlands, undergraduate skills-based training and education in both the UK, India and China. He has worked at UNNC since September 2012, and became Associate Dean at the Business School from Summer 2013 to Summer 2021.

His background is in Organisational Behaviour, and much of his educational and training work relates to the management of individuals at work. However, as author of The Business Student’s Guide to Study and Employability (published by SAGE) he has also delivered sesssions for different groups on academic skills, personal transferable skills – particularly around communication skills at work – and skills centered around job application skills. He is Associate Dean – Education and the Student Experience – at Nottingham University Business School (NUBS) in China and has won teaching awards at both universities where he has taught. He is a member of various university and Business School committees in the UK as well as in China, and is a member of University Senate.

Peter has more than 5 years of training middle-managers and executives working in China. He has trained and coached university teachers and lectures, has organized learning conferences for academics at UNNC and has developed training policy for business schools, both in the UK and China.

He is a personable and engaging presenter who is passionate about others’ learning. He is President of a local Toastmasters Club in China, is an award winning club speaker and someone who loves travel and landscape photography.
